ENID, Okla. — Police officers in Oklahoma who thought they were responding to a person in distress on Monday were surprised to discover it was actually just a barn animal.
Body cam footage posted on social media shows Officers David Sneed and Neal Storey of the Enid Police Department walking down a field toward what sounds like someone yelling for help. "I think that's a person," one of the officers says as the other begins running to the source of the call.
As they got closer, Officer Sneed could hear a distinct yell for "help," police said in a statement on Facebook.
But as they got closer to the sound they discovered it wasn't someone calling for help, just a very loud goat.
The officers share a laugh as the goat continues to yelp in the background. A farmer then explains to the officers that the goat was upset because it had been separated from one of its friends.
"Thank you, gentlemen. Your swift actions (although in the end not necessary) are appreciated by us all," police joked in a statement. "All in all, you really can't say it was that baaad of a call."
